3.0 out of 5 stars Fallacies June 2, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Excellent for introductory classes in Logic. It should be a fine companion to the first in the series Forty Fallacies.

Perhaps more time should be spent with the more common fallacies such as "Denying the Anticedant".

5.0 out of 5 stars Very helpful and thought-provoking May 27, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I've used Dr. Labossiere's first book on Fallacies as a frequent reference. His new book supplements this great reference. The examples help me more easily understand and identify errors in reasoning and argumentation, and also help me avoid making them myself!

This book explains the position of many marketing tools used against customers. Upon the completion of the book, it became apparent that most advertisements on the television and radio use fallacies to create sales. This is a great read for college student and business administrators.
